My husband knew that I needed a little bit of Sunshine after our IVF journey thus far and a recent loss. This ring represents so much more than I can even express and it definitely brought me a smile during a difficult time. It also represents our hope moving forward <3. My kids all weighed in on color combinations so it was a group effort.

Now on to the indroduction. I have named her "Soleil" because she is a ray of sunshine after some cloudy days. I will get better pictures this week. I spent the week out of town with my daughter at a horse show and just disconnected for a bit.

For now here are the stats and a few quick snaps.

The stones and 18k setting where acquired by Alex Park. He is amazing and so kind. I can't say enough good about him.

Center:

2.16 N OEC
8.02mm X 8.14mm X 5.24mm

Side Stones:

2 1.13 ST VS OECs

Total finger coverage is around 22mm. Each stones is held by 8 prongs in a crown setting.

More Pictures to come.

Now this is absolutely knock your socks off beautiful. The diamonds are beautiful, the proportions, the size on your hand & the yellow gold is the icing on the cake.

I am so sorry to hear about your IVF heartache. Big hugs to you.

I am going to try to get some more focused photos later. My phone was having a hard time focusing on the huge amount of colors and sparkle. As soon my phone would focus the light would hit a new spot and my camera would struggle. The stones pick up so many different colors.

@HS4S_2 -

Firstly - this is beyond stunning. Just sublime and perfect in every way! What an incredible new addition to your collection!

Secondly - could you just clarify the ctw of the sides? Are they 1.13ctw or 1.13ct each - ie 2 x 1.13ct? Also - would you mind sharing your finger size?

I just LOVE those proportions! And I beyond love that setting.

I hope Soleil brings you warmth and sunshine and much luck in 2021.

Thank you Mrs B! Each side stone is 1.13 for a side stone total of 2.26. The total carat weight is 4.42.

I wear a 6.5 but had it made 6.75 for stacking. The setting is very comfortable.
